Hello, Can someone please give me a date on this large 9" high famille rose bookend? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! David.

The first thing to notice from the hair style is that the child would seem to be female. Apart from Mulan and other feminine myths and legends, girls were seldom found as the focal point of Chinese export art until the Republic Period (1912-49), and women's liberation in China was an unsteady process until after World War II ended in 1945. As such, I'd guesstimate that your bookend dates from the mid-20th century or later.

Best regards,

Bill H.
